The Little Traveler Fence Machine Company Sell 700 Machines in Steele County—Their Honorable Business Methods. [Oioatonna, Minn., Journal, Dec. 10, 1897.] The agents of the Little Traveler Fence Machine company, who have been doing business in this county for the past six weeks, have practically completed their work and have met with a gratifying degree of success. The device which its agents have been introducing is one which commends itself as a practical fence builder, and it will save those using it a great deal of time and considerable expense. The fact that during their short stay in Steele county the agents have sold 700 of their machines, plainly indicates that their advantages are patent to everybody, and that the Little Traveler Fence Machine is particularly well suited to the needs of our farmers. In the adjoining county of Olmstead, 800 were sold in two months, and so far as we have heard the Little Traveler Fence Machine has in every case given entire satisfaction. The company is a reliable one. It was established in 1892 in Kansas, with a capital stock of $25,000, and the manufacture of the Little Traveler Fence Machine has rapidly developed into one of the leading industries of that great state. The men who are connected with the home office are prominent and well known as men of integrity and honor. Its president is Mr. M. Cahill, and its secretary and treasurer Mr. E. F. Madden, president of the First National bank of Hays City, Kas. The factories are turning out 150 machines a day, but so great is the demand for the Little Traveler Fence Machine that it is impossible almost to promptly supply it. Mr. L. D. Fowler has had charge of the work here, and he has proved himself a thorough business man, upright, energetic, reliable, and straightforward in hie methods of conducting the affairs of the company. The gentlemen associated with him in introducing the machine have shown themselves worthy of the public confidence, and the success they have met with shows in how great a degree they enjoy it. Generally it pays a farmer to beware of peddlers and traveling strangers and it is therefore all the more gratifying to know that the rule does not apply in the case of the agents of the Little Traveler Fence Machine company. They can be relied upon to live up to their contracts and those dealing with them need have no fear but that they will conform to any agreement they may make.' Although Mr. Fowler and hie corps of assistants are about to leave the county, the company will continue to do business here, For this purpose they have established a number of agencies in, different parts of this and the adjoining oountiesand. have secured as representatives a number of the most progressive of our farmers. A Jiet of these agents appears in another column of this week's Journal. Per- eon.* wishing to examine into the merits, ol this machine cannot do better thancppauU ' Best Thing I Ever Saw. OWATONNA, Minn., Doc. 4, 1897.—To whom this may concern: I have purchased of your salesman, D. A. Grimes, one of the Little Traveler Fence Machines and have built fire rods of fine galvanized arch top fence, which I built at a cost of 49 cents a rod, 4 feet high, and think it the best fence I ever saw. I have u large amount of old barb wire on ray farm which I intend to weave up into hog- fence. I find it makes the cheapest, best and most durable fence for stock I have ever seen. The machine is easy to work and is something that I can recommend to everybody. Have found the company good, honorable men and square in all their dealings. WM. GAMBLE, County Commissioner. TAKE NOTICE. Among the Following is a List of 50 Purchasers in Fayette County, Iowa, From Feb. 2 to Feb. 13, 1897. All Farmers Want It. OWATOXNA, Minn., Dec. 4, 1897.—L. D. Fowler, Superintendent The Little Traveler Fence Machine Co.: I hav bought one of your fence machines o your salesman, D. A. Grimes, and fini this machine is what every farme wants. It is easy to work and you can use up all old material on the farm such as barb wire, barrel staves, stick or any material going to waste, and with five cents worth of wire per roc can make a first-class hog fence. Thi fence can be made on uneven ground and the fence will be perfectly tigh where manufactured fence cannot bi stretched; and I highly recommend thi company and their salesmen as being good, honorable men and upright in their dealings, aad will say to all m farmer friends, this is the machine we all need, as the price is within reach o all. Yours respectfully, E. C. BURK. The following cuts show the Little Wonder Combination Tool. Seven tools in one. Just tho handiest thing the farmer can have on the furm. It comprises a bolt holder, wire plyers, screw Just What They Say It Is. ELGIN, Minn., Sept. 17,1897. Mr. L. D. Fowler—Dear Sir; The fence machine I purchased of your salesman, C. W. Fifield, is all that it was represented to be, and is what every farmer needs. Your son Robert built me 1<% rods of 4-foot fence and was just one hour and 50 minutes building it. It is the cheapest and best fence I have on my farm. I have taken pains to see quite a number of my neighbors who have purchased your machine, and I find every man well satisfied. I cannot say too much for The Little Traveler Fence machine and the company. M. A. COON. MORRIS, 111., July 17. 1897.—For the information of those interested in fencing I desire to state that I have purchased and put in a lot of diamond meah fence at a cost of 40 cents per rod. My attention was afterwards called to the Little Traveler Fence machine and the various kinds of fence constructed with the Little Traveler, by far the cheapest and best fence, quality considered, that I ever saw. Fifty-two rods, arch top, strong, handsome and durable, cost $26.20, Too much cannot be said in its favor. STORY MATTESON, JR. MOBKIS, 111., July 17, 1897.-To whom this may concern: I have known Story Matte- eon, Jr., for the past 20 years ana have known him well and he is one of our prominent farmers and what he says can be re- a. A. CVNNSA, First National Bank. From Arkansas. FAYETTEVILLE, Ark., Jan. 29, 1897.— To whom it may concern : W. C. Kincaid and Orville Williams built for me a circular wire fence with iron rails and posts around the yard of my dwelling in September, 1895. The job is entirely satisfactory. The fence stands today in as good condition as it was when it was when it was built. It has not been necessary to repair it and it has been of no expense to me whatever since it was built.
